Rick Steves' Favorite Apps For Managing Your Travel Itinerary
According to travel expert Rick Steves, there's a handy group of apps that, with the help of an internet connection, can help you stay on top of everything you need when traveling.
Steves notes on his website that dedicated, free-to-download travel booking apps like, Expedia, Kayak, or Priceline are helpful to keep handy throughout your trip.
These apps can show you available hotels, display flights across dozens of airlines, and help ensure you have a car as soon as you land.
Apps like Skyscanner or Hopper can help you get the best deals on flight tickets, while other airline-specific apps can help with check-in and keep track of all itinerary changes.
For planning the perfect travel itinerary, Steves recommends using TripIt, which is basically like having a personal travel agent in your pocket guiding you through your time away.
With details of your hotel and flight reservations, Triplt will keep a destination-specific itinerary with flight times, reservation codes, and hotel details all in one place.
Per Steves, apps like TripAdvisor and Yelp can help you sort out a plan once you land. Customer feedback on the global platform TripAdvisor makes exploring new places a breeze.
